SongShan was once known as ShiKou, which is where this place gets its name. "Shi Yuan" also sounds similar to a Chinese expression that means "to cherish your relationships". Shi Yuan is managed by the Song Shan District Farming Association. The director, Miss Pong Xin Lan, was once a radio show host and producer, and hopes to demonstrate her organizational skills and belief in "natural living". There are four main focuses in Shi Yuan's management policies: appreciation for agriculture, health consciousness, current trends, and humanity. All the food and drinks are organic. The rice here is high-quality Taiwanese rice, very sweet and fragrant. Even the water is "energy water" that has been distilled through volcanic mineral rocks. As a result, the teas and coffees are delicious. Through the food and water, it is hoped that customers will cherish farmers' hard work and foster a love for nature. Shi Yuan used to be an old ShiKou granary and has maintained its Baroque-style exterior and interior architectural structures. Old farming equipment adorns the interior, adding to the retro feel. Various set meals are available here for between NT$150 and NT$199. Healthy medicinal stewed soups are only NT$220 and are not only delicious, but also very affordable.
